Recently Purchased: Chemex Coffeemaker
The kitchen appliance I'm most proud of owning, which is also the only thing in my kitchen that I've ever purchased, is the Chemex Coffeemaker (That's steam in the photo. It's not dirty, I swear). Designed in 1941 by Peter Schlumbohm, the Chemex Coffeemaker was named one of the "Best Designed Products of Modern Times" and is still pretty darn sexy. Below are some manuals I snapped photos of at the MoMA.
This bottom one I'm confused about. It reads "In this age of CANNIBALLISTICS these 100 products are one hundred rays of hope for the World's Youth." If you know what the heck that means, please comment. I don't get it.
